Legrottaglie opens Lecce door

Nicola Legrottaglie has told Lecce that he'd be happy to sign for them if they made a bid for his services.

"I'm ready to evaluate any offers," the 34-year-old told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "And Lecce would be a welcome solution.

"They are a club who have achieved some important results over the last few years in Serie A and B.

"Playing in Italy or abroad doesn't make much difference to me, I'm ready for any experience," he added.

"All that I am looking for is an important project and at that point I am ready to calmly discuss anything."

The veteran stopper is available on a free transfer after he wasn't handed a new contract by Italian champions Milan this summer.

The former Azzurri international, who started his career at Bari before making his name at Chievo, is a central defender.

He joined Milan in January from Juventus after agreeing a six-month contract at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Siena, Cesena and Novara have also been paired.
